New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - May 24, 1996, New Braunfels, Texas -HerakJ-Zeitung O Friday, May 24,199609 For lf 99 * "JOURNEY WITH DIRECTION" is written to help you examine your direction in life... to consider where you have been, but more importantly, to concentrate on where you are going stop and identify where you are fright now. I have often been impressed by the spiritual direction that can be obtained from roadway signs. Upon considering the purpose for the sign being in that specific location, I have been amazed by the spiritual guidance received "—Marty Lindley, author of "JOURNEY WITH DIRECTIONAL “LOW CLEARANCE” sign instincts us not to enter if our load is higher thaiHhe entrance indicates. A, J How many of us have stood before a doorway that we know God wants us to go through in order to experience the pure joy only He can give, but we can’t fit through because we have “too much” piled 14) on top of us... we will not fit until we ’lake some off die top.” What is the “some”? I have found the “some” is an individual thing; everyone’s “some” is different. The “some” is whatever involvement, activity, relationship (however good or bad) that keeps us from experiencing God’s very best during our life journey. I remember a time in my life when God instructed me to “take some off the top ” I was working full time as a fee appraiser (no production ... no income), taking courses to earn my real estate appraisal designation, teaching a women’s Bible class on Sunday morning, and teaching a weekly, non-denomina-tional Bible study. Our daughter was planning a September wedding, my ■ ■    -j|    husband was considering Lindley ^ making a Career change, we were in the midst of remodeling “this old house,” my mother was suffering for need of a hip replacement, one of my brothels was in need of a drug rehab program, a close friend had recently committed suicide, ... and I don’t even want to try to rcmem-ber any more of the “some” in my life. My desire was to “be there” for everyone ... the best wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, Marty teacher and career professional. One early morning, during my Bible study-prayer time, I remember God dropping the thought in my mind of resigning as teacher ofthe Sunday morning Bible class. My immediate respond was, “Oh no, Lxxd, teaching is “My fulfillment” I had helped start die Women Victorious Class, a class prayerfully organized to pro-vide an encouraging atmosphere for women who attend church akne, regardless of the reason. My “reason” was that my husband did not see the need for attending church. He felt uncomfortable in any “churchy” atmosphere. He would say, “I get my faith from my wife Marty.” Ten years prior I had begun asking God to work in our lives ... to change me, to change Jeff, to change our micro-world... to do whatever was required to draw us together into a relationship with Him. Week after week, year after year, I would sit in church without my life partner ... always believing that God would anayrermy request for Jeff to someday be sitting next to me. Many Sundays I would be so encouraged by die sermon, I couldn’t wait to come home to my best friend and share with him an encouraging practical care, that he just could not identify with the spiritual part of my life. So, the years went by while I taught the Sunday class for women who also attended church alone, and I waited for God to cause the change. Almost a year passed before I finally obeyed God’s instruction to “take some off die top” by resigning as the Women Victorious Class teacher. I did not understand why God was asking me to give up what, from my perspective, was honoring Him... teaching His Word, encouraging women. However, I made a conscious, willful decision to trust Him tori]] both die teaching position and my lesson preparation time. I would wait to experience die pure joy He wanted to give to me. On a Saturday evening, almost one year from the date of my resignation, Jeff and I were dining out He nonchalantly asked, “What service are you going to tomorrow?” I responded, “Probably die 8 am Why, do you want to go somewhere?” He casually replied, “No, I just thought I would go to church with you tomorrow, if you are going to eight o’clock service.” Not wanting to over-react, I calmly replied, “Okay.” Silently, aft I could think was “YES! YES! YES!” ... and I was sure all of heaven stood and sang the Hallelu jah Chorus in praise at the hearing of Jeff s casually spoken words. Within less than 60 seconds, God answered over ll years of prayers. I sometimes wonder what effect my unwillingness to immedistely follow God’s instnictkxi and “take some offthe top” had on our entrance through the doorway God had opened for Jeff and me to attend church together. If my load had not been so high, my involvement in church activities so time consuming and distracting from our relationship, could we have possibly entered sooner? In Proverbs 3:5-6, we are given theae wise directions for our life journey, “With all your heart you must trust the Lord and not your own judgment Always let Him lead you, and He will dear the road for you to follow.” When God asked you to “take some off the top,” to “free up some time on your schedule,” to give up some “thing,” some “activity,” or some “one,” what is your response? Do you wait until YOU are ready, or immediately obey when GOD knows you are ready? What “some” is God waiting for you to give up, cerote year can m tnrougn me enuance, dear me doorway, and experience a moment of pure joy in life?
